Did they worked before? what happens once you click enable?

When you bought VMS16P you got S/N for NB

Using VMS16 rendering 4K video - Only seems to use CPU to pre render proxy files and not the 6GB or DDR5 on my Nvidia 1060 ?

Is their a way to FIX this?

Uses GPU when doing final video render.

 

Cheers

I fixed it.. silly me didn't use the registration code for effects!!

ALL Transitions working now.

I installed the Soundforge program as well but not sure what I will do with it.

Not posted yet. I've just let VMS download it but not install as yet.

Build 142 installed now but a warning the download file gets deleted once installation and activation is complete. If like me you like to keep a copy of the file it's VMSPEUpdate.exe 521,254 kb found in your User\AppData\Local\Movie StudioPlatinum\16.0 folder. You need to copy it before you click the Install Now button. Installing after shutting down didn't work for me and the file disappeared so I had to let VMS download it again.

If you go your Magix account and run the Download Manager Build 142 now appears in the list.

Hopefully we may get details of this new build later in the European day.

The Readme file appears to have been updated so the changes are probably under "Changes in Update 2". From memory this is the second update.

FayFen wrote on 7/22/2019, 7:16 AM

I just D/L and updates but VMS wont activate/register it say no online connection but hay... I'm on the forum...

I reboot my system but still "no connection" for activation hence no VMS anymore...

It suggest to "reset internet connection" with dozen alerts, why should I do so? All the other programs work fine with the current connection.

I wait for your experience.

** Nada, even after reset

*** I disabled Avira , but even after 15min of this still nothing, and counting

Well, someone at Magix finished his coffee/smoking break and confirmed "the call", after 20 min.

Probably you have a setting made in Windows that does not allowe other software to use a connection to the internet, mostly a setting in Windows Defender.

Popup announcement text...
Changes in Update 2 (build 142)

The first screen of the Guided Video Creator tool now autoscrolls when you move a thumbnail to a position that is not currently visible in the window

The Guided Video Creator tool now informs the user that it is processing when numerous media files have been added thus resulting in longer processing time

An alert box asks the user to confirm that they really want to leave the Guided Video Creator

Files added to the Main Storyboard timeline through the Import function now also land on the main project timeline

A new preference enables the user to disable auto detection for 360° files

Clicking the beginning edge of an event properly places the cursor at that exact frame

Adding media to the Main Timeline storyboard honors the Overlap preference for events added to the timeline

Undesired behavior when clicking the timeline ruler has been eliminated to make the behavior consistent with VEGAS Pro

Multiple Undo items are no longer undesirably added when making OFX parameter changes under certain circumstances

Files from the GoPro Hero 7 are now properly identified when added to the timeline and are no longer read as 360° files

Fixed a bug which could cause problems when adding the Video Stabilization plug-in to multiple video clips

Applying video stabilization to a still-image file no longer affects the application negatively

The Welcome screen no longer remains open behind the main application window after you select Easy Editing Modes

Missing 360° plug-ins are once again available

VEGAS Screen Capture utility has been added

@robbif2 see the previous announcement: https://www.vegascreativesoftware.info/us/forum/vms-platinum-update-2-build-142--116332/#ca723002

@EricLNZ FayFen later edited that comment to include this: "Well, someone at Magix finished his coffee/smoking break and confirmed "the call", after 20 min." and has posted later. So the problem seems to be solved sooner rather than later due to there being daytime in Europe then instead of nighttime.

EricLNZ wrote on 7/23/2019, 6:56 AM

Thanks vk. I wrongly assumed he'd sent a ticket to which Magix had responded. Around the same time my activation took only a few seconds. But my request to Berlin probably goes around the planet by a different route. I read recently that 96 percent of internet traffic goes by cable. So in the event of cable failure satellites aren't much use as a backup.

FayFen wrote on 7/23/2019, 8:43 AM

@FayFen Did you manage to complete activation and if so what was the problem?

I don't know what was the problem, I did disabled Avira but still it took 20minutes, if I wasn't patient enough (and you no that I'm not..) and doing something else I would have kill that process sooner.

I have tried repeatedly to perform the update from build 109 to build 142, however after selecting update after program closes it fails with the statement: cannot update while program is running. What is the best way to complete this update?

Probably your memory is not refreshing on time.
If this is the case you have to manually close the program through the taskbar option and than try again to install. evt. after a new start of the program.

I have tried that, is there a way to download the installer and perform an uninstall of the existing version installed and then do a reinstall of the version that is the most recent one?

EricLNZ wrote on 7/23/2019, 10:38 PM

@Kevin-Bruff Download your language version from the link on this page https://www.vegascreativesoftware.info/us/forum/vegas-movie-studio-16-update-2-build-138-142--116343/

Then with VMS not open run the file. It will usually uninstall your existing version for you. No guarantee as I haven't tried this file as my update from VMS eventually went okay.

I thought my build 142 was opening faster too, until I realised GPU acceleration was turned off in preferences. Once I turned it back on it took as long as VMS15 to start. Not sure if I turned it off earlier and forgot, or if installing build 142 turned it off.

I don't like this new layout. How do I set it to be like previous versions?

Unfortunately you cannot. Others have already complained about this so hopefully we may get the tree view back in a future update.

STRONGLY AGREE.......... I purchased two copies of 16 and they both are sitting inactive and not being used. I also have stopped recommending Movie Studio to my newer editors until this fix has been made. It is a HUGE negative on the work flow especially for newer editors and removes the great VISUAL aspect of quick easy editing.

Excuse me but, I installed VS16 in my new editing computer, and I see that lots of features have gone bay bay. really helpfull tools that I need to have in the screen. It looks to me that this is a software made for kids. Big symbols, just a few buttons, a guided moviemaker like the basic "Moviemaker used in windows 7" .?? a very poor menu bar.. What am I missing? I can't returned it. This is nothing compared to VS14 or 15. which look more professional, and had lots of features included.
What is going on?
